Halton Hills firefighters will be in Georgetown Marketplace this week getting the message out that everyone should use safe cooking practices because cooking equipment is the number one cause of preventable home fires in Ontario. "Prevent Cooking Fires-- Watch What You Heat" is the theme for Fire Prevention Week, which runs from Oct. 8 to 14. Throughout the week firefighters from Halton Hills Fire Protection and Prevention Services will be on hand at their display in the mall offering up fire prevention tips, brochures, pamphlets and booklets. Area residents can check out a mock-up display of the devastating effects a kitchen fire can have in their home and see how a small fire on the stove can quickly escalate into a fire causing thousands of dollars in damage. There will also be lucky draws for a 20" television, DVD player and a backpack full of special items for children. The services' antique 1926 Studebaker pumper, L'il Squirt and Freddie the Fire Truck will also be on display.
